The Gospel told through jellybeans

Gold is for heaven, where God wants us to go.

Black is the sin, the darkness in man's soul.

Red is for the blood Jesus shed on cavalry.

White is for a new heart, Jesus gives to you and me.

Green is for our faith, growing stronger everyday.

Jesus living through me, cause He's the only way!

You can tell I am getting my degree in children's ministry. I was enjoying some delicious starburst jellybeans when I remembered this great rap I learned in high school that teaches the Gospel. It might me cheesy but it's a simple way to share the amazing story of Christ's death and resurrection. I hope this reminds you about the cross, how through Jesus' love and sacrifice we are forgiven and redeemed.

But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Isaiah 53:5
